Harriet Bart’s body of work, from early textile-based objects to the public sculpture placed at Iowa State University, often examine the act of remembering. In her art, importance is placed on the written word as well as the power objects command in remembering, protecting, and transforming oneself. Through the consolidation of object, meditation and poetry, much of Bart’s art invites the viewer to Pay Attention to What They Tell you to Forget, as quoted from Muriel Rukeyser from Double Ode, 1976. Many of the public works in the Art on Campus Collection serve as reminders to those on campus, calling attention to the collective and diverse histories of campus and beyond, and to the experiences of others we may so easily forget or even not consider. This exhibition continues the examination of how Bart’s works of art fit into that tradition of public remembrances and experiences through art.
